I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com. This is my review of the Rugged Ridge full length Eclipse sun shade fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of this for both the two door and the four door body style, so make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. This top is for those of you who like that top down open air driving experience but don't want the full strength of the sun beating down on your head. The design of this means that you don't need a windshield header. It's a really easy install and it can stay installed underneath your hard top or your soft top. This is a little bit less expensive of a mesh top than some of the other ones on the market, however it should hold up pretty well and it'll definitely get the job done. The mesh material that this top is made of will block a lot of the UV rays while still giving you that open air driving experience. The way that this is designed has the straps and the bungees built right in. There's nothing separate from the top to lose or misplace when you have it uninstalled from the Jeep. Another really nice feature is that you don't need a header bar with this. That helps to keep the cost down a lot. This includes a carrying case so when you have it uninstalled from the Jeep you have a nice secure spot to store it in. Getting this top installed on your Jeep is really easy with the included and attached hardware. It wraps around the sport cage on the sides and in the back and attaches to the footman loops across the top of the windshield up front. Even though you can have this installed with the hard top or the soft top on the Jeep, it'll definitely help to have the other tops removed when you're actually installing this the first time. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes and you won't need any tools at all. Like I said before, this is less expensive than some of the top tier sun shades on the market. Some of those other ones come in some additional colors. They might have a little higher build quality or quality of materials. To be honest with you, this fit well, it installed easily, it looks good and it gets the job done while leaving a couple of dollars in your pocket for your next mod. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge full length Eclipse sun shade fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Rugged Ridge Sun Shade
Works great!! it stays on the jeep well which is what I was most concerned about. The shading of the vehicle makes the biggest difference in the summer time. Love it! Worth every penny.Helpful (0)

Thought this would be a very easy install and it wasn’t. The sizing is off which makes it difficult to attach. Also does not provide much shade. Overall feels like a waste of money.Helpful (1)

Easy, inexpensive and functional
Just got this delivered yesterday, and had it installed in under 20 minutes (because I already had my top off.) Very impressed with overall quality and design. It fits as advertised, and will do the job at a fraction of the cost of other shades. It came with clear directions, and even a carry sack to store it in when not on the jeep... though I plan to leave mine on indefinitely as I can put the hard top and freedom panels over it. I'd definitely recommend this item in lieu of more expensive alternatives.Helpful (2)

The cover blocks most of the wind and makes riding with the top off more enjoyable (if that’s possible). Easy to put on and a great quality product.Helpful (1)

Does the job
Offers a bit of shade in the hot summer months with the top off- easy to put on/take off, doesnt make noise when driving on the highway, and stays put. All in all, affordable, good purchase if not looking to spend a ton for a bikini top.Helpful (1)

Maybe not for North Florida summers
I am extremely happy with this product. Only problem is with the high humidity summers in florida when the temps can reach 100 degrees. This is going to be great fot the fall and spring, but I may purchase a Black Diamond top for the summer months.Helpful (2)
I was wondering if the RUGGED RIDGE FULL-LENGTH ECLIPSE SUN SHADE is also usable with hardtops in a way where i can leave the back part on and just take the front part off and still use the mesh. Can the Mesh be kept while having the hardtop on?
The Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade (07-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) is designed to fit underneath your factory soft top or hard top so it can still be used when you remove the freedom panel or fold back the sun rider feature on your soft top.
Does this product need a windshield channel?
This would not require the windshield channel.
How do you replace the built in bungee cords when they are stretched out and no longer hold the top as tightly as it should be held?
In order to replace the Bungee chords on the Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade, a specialty upholstery shop would need to remove them, and stitch in new ones.
Does this keep rain out?
This is neither water proof nor water resistant. lt is intended to offer relief from the sun only.
Will this work with the spod switches mounted above the rear view mirror
We believe this would work, however we do not carry the Spod to confirm.
Yes, this would be suitable for highway speeds.
Yes, this sunshade can work with the soft top installed as it is secured by built-in bungee cords.
The Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade will only fit the 07-18, 4 Door JK.
Yes, you can still use this sun shade with the Bestop Trektop NX Plus.
The Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade should still be compatible with your CB mount installed.
The Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade will interfere with proper installation of most full bikini soft tops as they will mount to the windshield header, which will be obscured by the Sun Shade.
Hello! This top is totally safe at highway speeds, it does have a little bit of movement to it of course, however it will not blow off the car or anything!
